A Silicon Valley icon and philanthropist for more than thirty years, Steve Wozniak has helped shape the computing industry with his design of Apple’s first line of products the Apple I and II and influenced the popular Macintosh. In 1976, Wozniak and Steve Jobs founded Apple Computer Inc. with Wozniak’s Apple I personal computer. The following year, he introduced his Apple II personal computer, featuring a central processing unit, a keyboard, color graphics, and a floppy disk drive. The Apple II was integral in launching the personal computer industry.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak voices his frustration with Toyota for not acknowledging a software glitch he discovered in his 2010 Prius that causes the accelerator to go wild under certain conditions of cruise control.
"It's in the software, it's not a bad accelerator pedal," he says. "It can be very scary, but luckily for me I can hit the brake."
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak recalls the moment he stumbled upon the idea of how to put color into computers. The inspiration came during a sleepless four-day and four-night design session while building the Atari game Breakout. "That was probably one of the biggest things Apple ever did," he says.
